Raina and Rhema Wong are twin sisters born and raised on the Island of O’ahu. Their sustainability and environmentalist journeys began with Netflix documentaries and Instagram informational videos and have now grown to affect every part of their lives. When they learned about the state of our planet and the fate for all living things, they felt as though they needed to adjust their lifestyles. Our Earth's climate is changing and it will affect Raina and Rhema and their generation's lives and families. Raina and Rhema eventually began to unfold many different movements that were aimed towards a healthier planet and a healthier body. Some of these movements include waste-free, plastic-free, and cruelty-free. As they learned more about these movements, it only made sense that they wanted to help others accommodate them into their daily lives.
Raina and Rhema's environmental activism started with their friends and family. They would always share about new sustainable products they found, new ideas and insights, and anything that Resignated with their new values. Once they had started using plastic-free, waste-free, and cruelty-free products themselves, they sought out a bigger mission. They wanted to reach a larger audience and be able to share their sustainability journeys with as many people as possible.
This is where R Planet was created. It is a way for Raina and Rhema to share their values of living waste-free, cruelty-free, and plastic-free. R Planet aims to incorporate the use of environmentally responsible practices into people’s homes and daily lives. With R Planet, Raina and Rhema aspire to make a positive impact on the planet and to bring awareness to the importance of living considerately.
